Heart-lung transplantation is a rare surgical option performed to replace both the heart and lungs in a single operation when other treatment options have failed. Here, we present a case report of heart-lung transplant operation performed on a 17- year- old male with complex congenital heart disease, pulmonary hypertension and heart failure with ejection fraction <25%. We also outline the operative indications, contraindications, prognosis, care of the patient and complications of heart-lung transplantation.

Keywords: Heart-lung transplantation; Indications ; Contraindications.
